This week’s episode is brought to you by Thrive Market, Bada Bean Bada Boom & Not Just
We promise that we get the bean jokes out the way early in this episode to make way for serious bean conversation. Because, sure, beans are funny, but they’re also our number one pantry staple thanks to their wild versatility, affordability, and nutritional impact. They go into the pot hard and dry, and come out soft and delicious. It’s like magic, and we talk all about how you can harness their wonder.

A Little Bit of Magic
Beans are a little bit of magic — or maybe a lot of magic, if you count the fact that you can even make good use of the water in which you cook your beans! (More on that below!)
From creamy vegan sauces to healthier blondies (really — more on that below too!), beans can be used in an immeasurable number of delicious ways. And this week, we talk all about them.
Here are the links mentioned in our conversation:

Bada Bean Bada Boom
Bada Bean Bada Boom are DELICIOUS high-protein snacks made of roasted broad beans, though you’d never know it. The 13 flavors are far from tasting like nutritious beans and, instead, serve up 7 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber in tasty flavors like Zesty Ranch, Everything Bagel, Nacho Cheese, Sweet Cinnamon and more.
We promise our kids are as obsessed as we are! If you’re curious to know whether you and yours will love these super crunchy snacks as much as we do, give them a try and get $10 off any order $50 or more at BadaBeanSnacks.com/didntijustfeedyou.
We can’t count the number of times we’ve talked on the show about how hard it is to find delicious, store-bought jarred sauce. Not only have we found a new favorite, but the best part is that it’s NOT JUST a pasta sauce
Not Just is a versatile jarred sauce that you can use in a million ways made with tomatoes and other veggies —it has 0 grams of added sugar! It’s basically a meal starter: think dressings, dips, curries, soups, and more.
